Jennifer is at it again! She has started another card drive called...
in hopes of collecting a ton of cards for eight sick children, including little Kate (who, just this Monday, was readmitted, to Phoenix Children's Hospital, for her fifth round of chemotherapy), and their families. I have really loved reading Kate's blog, hearing of her ups and downs, and learning how to better pray for her specific needs and am thrilled to do the same for these other seven, precious children.
I decided to start with Braden.
According to Jennifer's blog, Braden was diagnosed with Stage IV, high risk neuroblastoma on December 28, 2007, at the age of 3. Braden was given a 30% chance for survival at that time. He went through six high dose rounds of chemotherapy, an autologous bone marrow transplant, radiation therapy, and follow-up therapies. Braden was declared to be in remission, but merely a few months later, and only a few weeks from his fifth birthday, his cancer relapsed. Braden, now, has only a 10% chance for survival. Braden is undergoing medical treatments both at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri, and at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
I used Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #20, as inspiration, for Braden's card.
Here is the card making it his way, even as I type.
